A benchmark white from Maule, this amazing Sauvignon Blanc has a vibrant bouquet of guava, passion fruit, and citrus, leading to a mineral driven mid-palate with soft undertones of crushed rock. It has terrific balance on the palate and combines elderflower and pink grapefruit notes with stony, bone-dry minerality. The volcanic ash from the vineyard adds to complete and precise finish.

Oriented to produce high quality wines. Located in the beginning of the Andes mountains. The vineyard is planted at 600m (1900 ft) of altitude. Laberinto is a small gravity fed winery owned by Rafael Tirado and his family in Colbun, by a lake, in an eastern mountainous region of the Maule Valley. He began to plant vines in 1993 and now cultivates 5 separate sections totalling 18ha of vineyards within their 80ha property. The soils are composed of granite and volcanic ash. He planted on the slopes in multiple row orientations, eventually planting a section as a labyrinth (Laberinto), hence the name of the wines and the drawings on the labels. The winery produces stunning expressions.
